ANTHONY STOLARZ cannot talk about the hip surgery he had in May. He has been instructed not to discuss the nature of what the procedure entailed. What he can talk about is his future in the Flyers organization, and how he believes he will be back and better than ever. "I'll be 100 percent, probably better than 100 percent," Stolarz said. "Looking at it, it is a thing of the past. Like Ron Hextall said, he wishes he had the surgery when he was playing. Moving forward, it is not going to hinder me or affect me. It is going to be good.

After the most frustrating season of his NHL career, defenseman Michael Del Zotto will bring a resolute attitude to the Flyers. "It was a bit of a humbling season," Del Zotto said Wednesday. Traded from the New York Rangers to Nashville in January, he was spurned in the free-agent market until the Flyers signed him to a one-year, $1.3 million deal on Tuesday. "This offseason is the most motivated I've ever been to get back and prove people wrong - and get back to where I was before.

FOUR GAMES. One long road trip. That's all it took to derail Michael Del Zotto's season last October, sending the defenseman once thought to be the future of the Broadway blue line spiraling down a dark road that ended as a frequent healthy scratch on a far different Lower Broadway in Nashville last April. A more humble Del Zotto, now armed with a second chance after Kimmo Timonen's blood clots opened an opportunity, will have a lot to prove on Broad Street this fall after signing a 1-year contract with the Flyers.

Seeking help for their defense, the Flyers agreed to terms Tuesday with veteran free agent Michael Del Zotto on a one-year deal. The team announced earlier in the day that defenseman Kimmo Timonen was hospitalized in Finland with blood clots in his lungs and his leg. Del Zotto, 24, had a goal and four assists in 25 games for Nashville last season after notching two goals and nine assists in 42 games for the New York Rangers. Del Zotto had 26 goals and 95 assists in 292 games over five seasons with New York.

There is no sense in pussyfooting around the severity of what the Flyers revealed Tuesday: that Kimmo Timonen - their most dependable and durable defenseman over the last decade - has developed blood clots in his right leg and in his lungs. It is severe for Timonen, and it is severe for the Flyers. Timonen turned 39 in March, and a couple of days after the Flyers' first-round loss to the Rangers in this year's playoffs, he held court in the center of their locker room at the SkateZone in Voorhees, open in his ambivalence about whether he would return to play another season.

ONE CALL, one suggestion from a doctor to check out severe calf pain, may have saved the life of Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen. Timonen, 39, was diagnosed with multiple blood clots in his native Finland on Monday, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall announced yesterday. Embolisms were found in both of his lungs and his right leg. According to Hextall, Timonen is "resting in stable condition and doing well" in a Finland hospital after the shocking diagnosis. "I got a call.

Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen was in stable condition in a Finland hospital after blood clots were found in both of his lungs and his right calf, general manager Ron Hextall said Tuesday. Hextall said the team believes it could be a "long-term situation. " He said Timonen, 39, would be discharged from the hospital Wednesday but cannot travel for two to three weeks. The 15-year NHL veteran then will be evaluated by the team's medical staff, which has been in contact with the player's Finnish doctors, Hextall said.

Eric Lindros, John LeClair and Eric Desjardins will be inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame this season, the team announced Thursday. Lindros and LeClair, who played together in the 1990s, will be inducted Nov. 20 before the team's game against the Minnesota Wild. Desjardins will be inducted before the Feb. 19 game against the Buffalo Sabres. "I think we had really good teams and really good years in the '90s," Desjardins, 45, said Thursday in a telephone interview. "It was a lot of fun and we had good success, except we didn't win the Cup. To be recognized with those guys means we did pretty good.

THERE WAS a time when the only way Eric Lindros was going to be inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame was if he bought the team. His relationship with Flyers general manager Bob Clarke had deteriorated to the point where Lindros was stripped of his captaincy. It got so ugly that Lindros' father, Carl, accused the Flyers of negligence and putting Eric's life in danger by refusing to treat a collapsed lung. But time heals all wounds, even those deep enough to drive a Zamboni through.

THE SOFT sell when Ron Hextall was promoted to the post of Flyers general manager in early May was that it was a natural evolution. Paul Holmgren repeated that he would not have lured Hextall away from Los Angeles the previous summer if he didn't anticipate this day; Hextall humbly contended that he would lean on Homer's counsel, and work alongside him. And while yesterday's casual interview in his Skate Zone offices contained all those subtexts (and...
